    I haven't seen anything posted on this, so I figured I'd share.This article also includes some notes on Fernando Bryant and the draft, but here was the money quote for me:

    Glad to have him aboard. Now I just hope they can reach a deal to keep that Flying Elvis on his helmet long-term. :rocker:

    It seems that the Pats front office have a pretty good working relationship with Rosenhaus given the number of clients he has on the team and the lack of contentiousness in negotiations (at least publicly)......

    Quite a deal for the Pats. I have to think he could've gotten a lot more on the open market.

    It's really a perfect fit for the Pats. Gaffney is a very solid #3, and in the case of injury to W***ker (I didn't want to type it out...losing him for any time would seem unimaginable now), he can perform as a backup slot receiver. The best part is, if and when Chad Jackson emerges into a star, we know Gaffney will still be able to make the most of his snap as a #4, and the price is right, too.

    I love Gaffney. I always have since his days with the Gators (my college football team). He doesn't have incredible speed but he makes up for that by being a surgeon on the football field when it comes to route running and getting open. He also makes the biggest catches when we need him to (against the Colts in the AFCCG and against the Ravens this year).

    Hmm... Interesting how "the middle" is perceived here as a 1 year. Looks to me like the Pats got what they wanted and not what Gaffney preffered.

    Yeah, but how often does a guy get a $1.2M deal where $500K is guaranteed?
